This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Coast.
Three different looks at coast’s over 25 years.
Isle of Skye Coast. An abandoned crofters cottage at Elgol on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
North Wales Coast. Oystercatchers on a section of the North Wales coast at Point of Air, Flintshire.
Ontario, Canada Coast. A section of the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton. Chantry Island is on the horizon and a long way behind the island is Michigan in the U.S.
This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Cover.
Having had my first cover shot published in the early 1980s I still try to shoot vertical and horizontal versions of a photo at times. Editors are often looking for vertical images for use on covers.
A sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment from late summer. This is a horizontal version I used in a blog post when it was taken.
A vertical version from that morning.
This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Sun, sea and sand.
Currently living in Ontario, Canada I’m a long way from the nearest salt water. But I am close to some of the sandy beaches of Lake Huron.
So here’s a sandy, fresh water beach at sunrise. The giant Canadian flag and flagpole at the bottom of High Street, Southampton, Ontario is visible above the horizon. A digital capture, I added a Polaroid type border to the image.
This is my contribution for day 25 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.
Lines of Quartz in a boulder on the Lake Huron shoreline. One of the boulders piled around Dominion Lookout at the bottom of High Street in Southampton, Ontario.
Throwback Thursday travels back 14 years. I had gone down to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario for the sunrise. I don’t remember what the sunrise was like but I did find a small group of juvenile Red Knot on the shoreline. Having hatched a few months previously they were heading south for the first time.
I spent some time with them, after a while they were comfortable enough to feed, bathe, preen and sleep in front of me.
This individual is feeding amongst the rocks on the shoreline.
